N.C. Department of Correction--Correction News--October 1998

Boyette returns to Wake as superintendent

RALEIGH Bonnie Boyette, program manager for the Division of Prisons, has been named superintendent of Wake Correctional Center, effective Aug. 24. She replaces David Osborne who is now the executive officer to the director of prisons.

In her new position as superintendent, Boyette will be returning to the same prison where her career with the department first began in 1981. At that time, Wake Correctional Center was known as Wake Advancement Center, and Boyette was the prison’s food service supervisor. In addition to food service, Boyette also supervised the prison’s educational programs. In 1988 when the prison expanded to become Wake Correctional Center, she was promoted to program director I.

Following her eight years at Wake Correctional Center, Boyette served as program director III for DOP administration. In 1991, she was promoted to superintendent of Fountain Correctional Center, a position she held for four years before becoming the Title VII operations manager and, eventually, personnel manager for DOP.

"Bonnie Boyette has worked hard and accumulated a wealth of experience during her career with the Department of Correction," Correction Secretary Mack Jarvis said. "Her experience will be a tremendous asset to the staff and inmates at Wake Correctional Center."

Originally from Atlanta, Boyette graduated from Western Guilford High School in Greensboro and received her bachelor’s degree in home economics education from Western Carolina University. Following college, she worked as a teacher for two years before beginning her career with DOC.

Boyette lives in Johnston County with her husband and their two daughters, 15-year-old Kimberly and 13-year-old Anna. u
